Amalgam Separator For Dirty Sinks

The disposal of wastes into water systems is known as ‘waste water discharge’ and is subject to conditions and controls set by the UK’s 12 water and sewerage undertakers.

Healthcare organisations in particular carry out a number of activities that do, or have the potential to, result in the discharge of various items and substances to sewerage systems.

While most of the wastewater from the clinical environment in dental practices is already subject to a number of regulations, this new guidance has a particular impact on the ‘dirty sinks’ in practices. Its aim is to reduce the amount of amalgam, and subsequently mercury, reaching the sewerage system.

Our Amalgam separators can be fitted to all outlets for wastewater and this includes the dirty sink areas in which you wash your instruments and other multi-use equipment.

Our ‘Pure Motion’ amalgam separator operates on the principle of sedimentation and removes up to 99.8% of amalgam particulates from your surgery's wastewater stream. It also has no moving parts and therefore provides silent operation and minimal surgery downtime during services.
